Kraft Christmas with CPS!

It seems as though I've come down with a sinus infection and I just didn't have the energy to do much yesterday. I did the best I could to make it a stamping day by working with this weeks CPS sketch.
DRS Designs is their sponsor this week and here's this weeks sketch challenge.

Here's what I came up with for the challenge...

Stamps: DRS Designs- F002 Silhouette Holly, K286 Large Script Merry Christmas
Ink:  SU! Real Red, Glorious Green
Paper: Smooth white cardstock by Office Depot, Colored Cardstock by The Paper Company, American Crafts
Accessories: Nestabilities, EK Success Corner Rounder, Ribbon by Bobbie M. Designs, Cuttlebug and Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, brads by The Paper Studio, Hero Arts paper Poinsettias and adhesive pearls.
Finished Card Size: 7.25" x 5"

I used the Holly Silhouette (F002) from DRS Designs to create my own designer paper.  I really enjoyed stamping on the kraft cardstock rather then white this time.  It is a nice change, and I often run right to white cardstock when I want to create my own background--I have to keep reminding myself how elegant kraft cardstock can be!  I hope to use the scraps on another project since I have quite a bit left over from this card--fair warning you may see this handmade background again very soon!

Be sure to run over to the CPS blog and add your challenge card to win some great prizes from DRS Designs.

Hope you have a wonderful Holiday week!
